Vanderbilt, recognized as one of the country’s premier universities, brings that attitude of excellence to the way they operate their facilities. Virtually a small city, Vanderbilt needs to deal with buildings individually as well as a comprehensive portfolio. As in most multi-building environments which have been developed over time and include multiple vendors with technology spanning many years, integration, normalization of data and the extraction of insight are a major undertaking. Attendees will meet the engineering team that has designed and implemented this comprehensive, integrated campus building automation strategy. Demonstrations, conversations and tours will showcase Vanderbilt’s smart building program.
